February 24, 1924 ~ September 22, 2017 (age 93)

Justine Heroy Kobelt of Wallkill, NY, passed away on September 22, 2017.   She was 93. 

Justine was born in Newburgh, NY on February 28, 1924.  She was the daughter of James and Catherine Heroy. She graduated from Newburgh Free Academy and the Spencer Business School.  She was employed at Stewart Field in Newburgh during World War II where she met her husband who was stationed  there with the Army Air Corps.  Together they later opened the Kobelt Par Three Golf Course.

Justine's husband, Theodore, and son, Theodore Jr., predeceased her.  She is survived by daughters: Patricia Kobelt, Jacqueline Kobelt and Cynthia Chesser and her husband, William, as well as five grandchildren, five great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her brothers James Heroy, Harry Heroy, John Heroy, Ray Heroy and sister, Janet Baranski.

Justine was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who had a wonderful sense of humor.  She never missed a family celebration and was always delighted by visits from grandchildren and their little ones.

During the years the Kobelt Par Three Golf Course was in operation Justine often waited on customers.  She enjoyed gardening and watching the golfers.  Justine learned folk art painting later in life and passed on her love of art to her grandchildren.  She always considered herself a Newburgh city girl at heart and enjoyed hearing of the restorations taking place in Newburgh.
